Always marry your Angel

Appell_HPBefore I get into the topic of this month’s column, I want to wish everyone a healthy and Happy New Year. Now back to our regularly scheduled column.

Back in July 0f 2011 I had severe pain in my lower left back and was taken to the hospital by my wife, Terri, insisting that I was passing a kidney stone. She had experienced kidney stone attacks three times before so she was familiar with the symptoms.

After going through a battery of tests in the Emergency Room the diagnosis was a kidney or bladder infection. When Terri heard this opinion she insisted that I get a CAT Scan to check for the stone. The doctor said it wasn’t necessary but he would do it anyway to satisfy us. Soon after taking the test the doctor returned to my bed with a big smile on his face and said that there indeed was a stone and the stone may have saved my life. But Terri did!

Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple had an identical experience to mine except his test showed Pancreatic cancer and mine had shown a “Mass” on my left kidney. When you hear the word mass used in relation to something in your body your first thought is the C word. Jobs chose to treat his condition with alternative means which led to his passing in 2011. If I hadn’t had the kidney stone and my wife hadn’t insisted on the test procedure I would have followed Jobs.
